RECLAIM THE SPACE
Check out the new, amazing piece of street art by UK based, international artist Helen Bur in St Mellons! Commissioned by Common Wealth and our Sounding Board, it captures the heart & soul of the brilliant community in St Mellons. Painted on a 24 meter long wall in the civic space, the artwork features over 50 local people reclaiming their space during a mass “lie-in” on the grass in the fields behind Tesco
WE NO LONGER TALK – WORKSHOPS EXPLORING CLASS & THE WELSH LANGUAGE
We are researching for a new show about the experience of Welsh language, identity and class ‘We No Longer Talk’. We are interested in how we get taught language, how indigenous languages are fought for, what new languages are emerging, and what the relationship and assumptions about class and Welsh language are. As part of our r&d for We No Longer Talk we’re hosting a series of free creative workshops with some of our favourite artists.
